Re: Fwd: [cfgeeks] HACKERS LEAVE A TRAIL OF CHAOS, BUT FEW CLUES

In my minds eye, I see a 6 man seal team, armed to the teeth with
night-vision goggles and MP5's, helicoptering into rainy Birmingham,
England, chanting 'hut, hut, hut' in unison, and dragging off a 13 year
old snotty geek so that said 13 year old can be made an example of.

One wonders if I digested too much Monty Python in my youth, but I find
that image insanely funny.  Equally funny would be watching Tony Blair and
Bill Clinton having a 'who blinks first' contest at the United Nations.
